Won't Stay On


If it's brand new, the first thing I'd check is the oil level in the Honda motor. Most pressure washers are tested then the oil is drained out for shipment. Honda motors have an oil sensor in them that will shut the motor off if the oil level is low. When the motor is off, all the oil is in the bottom of the crankcase and the sensor 'thinks' all's OK. When you start it up and the oil is getting splashed around it will get low enough for the sensor to shut the motor down. Also make sure the gas is turned on at the carburator.

Engine run fine for approx. 10 min than suddenly shut off and will not run since. Machine has only been used once before for 30 min and its a new engine. Drain old gas out before starting. stored over...


Try watching Youtube videos on how to clean a small engine carburetor. Stored small engines get gummed up and a simple cleaning of the carb and fuel flushing may be all that is needed. Usually I need to remove the carb and the float bowl. If the fuel is orange / brown in the bowl it is a sure sign a good cleaning is in order. The float pin needs to move freely and the jet orifice needs to be cleared. Get a can of carb cleaner and spray and wipe all gummed deposits until clean. Note, take a picture of linkage connections, gasket positions, springs and screw sizes and locations in case you get distracted before completing re-assembley if you have a camera on your phone. If not, stay sober and complete asap.

Craftsman pressure washer constantly fluctuates and then stops


sounds like fuel problem. Either water\trash at bottom of tank, or most likely, carb needs to be disassembled and bowl and jets sprayed out w\carb cleaner.my money is on the latter.

My almost new Honda GCV 160 engine will not start.


Hi , I think you need someone to remind you these engins are not made by god and they work by obeying three simple rules ,
1.Spark , Can you see a very good blue spark
2.compression,,can you feel strong compression ,
3.fuel , is the right amount of fuel getting in , is the air mixture good ,

Now try these things

Find the manual and PROPPER set the gap in the spark plug ,
clean and check the air filter ,
remove all fuel and replace with brand new,
check the fuel filter,even in the tank tap?
undo the screw at the carb bowl , can you see petrol leaking ,

If everything checks out then try this to get it started,,

spray "easystart" in the carb , bypassing the air filter ,
if it wants to start but cant for long then its a carb problem
check float hight , float needle,jets and pins ,too much air getting in

find someone thats good on motorbikes , They like me know all the tricks to get things to start ,

Engine and water pressure surge


Almost certainly, your problem is being caused by the engine governor being set wrong. The governor is responsible for adjusting the engine as it comes under a load. With the breather off the carb, watch for the linkage that moves all by itself when you pull the trigger. It will have a spring as part of it, and an "arm" that is part of the linkage. This arm has 4-7 holes in it. Moving the spring to a different hole may fix the problem. There is also usually an adjustment screw that you can toy with and see if that tweaks it. But I'd definitely try moving the spring -- 1 position at a time -- and see if it a). helps or b). hinders......... Depending on the answer, you get a clue as to which direction to go with your next adjustment attempt. One of two directions will put the correct tension of the spring/arm and cause the governor to govern correctly.

No pressure in the pressure washer


Leaving the hose on shouldn't cause a problem so don't panic. It sounds like you could just have a dirty nozzle. Try sticking a pin or something in the end of the nozzle (machine not running) and giving it a clear out. also if it is a two peice gun, split it and tap the squirting part on something clean like a workbench to clear any debris that might have got in there.
